…POTENTIAL WINTER COMMUTING HAZARD FOR THE WASHINGTON METROPOLITAN AREA AND SOUTHERN MARYLAND MONDAY MORNING…

There is a potential for hazardous commuting conditions for the Monday morning commute. A period of snow is POSSIBLE (a 40 to 60 percent chance) late tonight into Monday morning across the Washington metro area into southern Maryland with up to an inch of accumulation along with the potential for snow covered roads.

If this threat does materialize during the late tonight through the Monday morning commute, many roads could quickly turn snow covered. This could lead to dangerous traveling conditions, multiple accidents, and extensive delays.

If commuting late tonight through Monday morning, be aware of the POSSIBILITY of significant travel disruptions. Plan ahead by allowing for extra travel time, and consider using public transportation and telework options.

Stay tuned for updates on this potential winter weather episode.

Earlier: If the blowing wind and sudden arrival of dark clouds did not make it clear, we’re about to get a change in the weather.

The National Weather Service has issued a Special Weather Statement, warning that an incoming snow shower may bring reduced visibility and light accumulation to the area.
